Yn ] be vectors in Rn . Then x ϩ y, the sum of x and y, is the vector [x1 ϩ y1 , x2 ϩ y2 , . . , xn ϩ yn ] in Rn . Vectors are added by summing their respective coordinates. For example, if x ϭ [2, Ϫ3, 5] and y ϭ [Ϫ6, 4, Ϫ2], then x ϩ y ϭ [2 Ϫ 6, Ϫ3 ϩ 4, 5 Ϫ 2] ϭ [Ϫ4, 1, 3]. Vectors cannot be added unless they have the same number of coordinates. There is a natural geometric interpretation for the sum of vectors in a plane or in space. The total movement (x ϩ y) is equivalent to ﬁrst moving along x and then along y.

Then use this vector to ﬁnd the distance between the given points. (a) (Ϫ4, 3), (5, Ϫ1) (c) (1, Ϫ2, 0, 2, 3), (0, Ϫ3, 2, Ϫ1, Ϫ1) (b) (2, Ϫ1, 4), (Ϫ3, 0, 2) 2. In each of the following cases, draw a directed line segment in space that represents the movement associated with each of the vectors if the initial point is (1, 1, 1). What is the terminal point in each case? (a) [2, 3, 1] (c) [0, Ϫ3, Ϫ1] (b) [Ϫ1, 4, 2] (d) [2, Ϫ1, Ϫ1] 3. In each of the following cases, ﬁnd the initial point, given the vector and the terminal point.

The set of all n-vectors is denoted Rn . 14]. 1 The vector in Rn that has all n entries equal to zero is called the zero n-vector. In R2 and R3 , the zero vectors are [0, 0] and [0, 0, 0], respectively. Two vectors in Rn are equal if and only if all corresponding entries (called coordinates) in their n-tuples agree. That is, [x1 , x2 , . . , xn ] ϭ [ y1 , y2 , . . , yn ] if and only if x1 ϭ y1 , x2 ϭ y2 , . . , and xn ϭ yn . 6) is often called a scalar to distinguish it from a vector. Geometric Interpretation of Vectors Vectors in R2 frequently represent movement from one point to another in a coordinate plane.
